Barr forms team to review FBI's actions in Trump probe

A full, redacted version of Robert Mueller's collusion report will be released to Congress within a week, Attorney General William Barr said in testimony before a House subcommittee April 9.

Barr said he is barred by laws and federal rules from releasing information gathered by Mueller's grand jury that might affect continuing criminal investigations and about peripheral figures who were not charged with crimes. The attorney general's explosive testimony marked his Capitol Hill appearance since he revealed the central findings of Mueller's investigation, and he indicated the full report - with redactions - would be made public within the week.

'It's very troublesome to see a Justice Department against the law of the land when there are many people - many people - who, if not liking the whole law, certainly like the pre-existing conditions provision, the ability to keep their child on their plan until that person's 26, ' Serrano said during the hearing Tuesday.

Although Mr Barr admitted that he will release the report quickly, he also confirmed that he will not provide Congress with an unredacted version.

It is not clear, however, if Mueller's report found that Trump obstructed justice during the investigation.

Last week news reports suggested that members of Mueller's team are frustrated with Barr's letter, which they saw as oversimplifying their more complicated findings. That particularly applies to the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler.

"If this is a 400-page report.to send us a four-page summary that just talks about the high-level conclusions is potentially misleading", Coons said.

Attorney General William Barr has assembled a team at the Justice Department to review how the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation began in 2016, according to a USA official.

The move indicates Barr is following Republicans' lead on the matter. He also said the attorney general will be taking input and suggestions from the special counsel on redactions.

Barr said, "I felt I should state bottom-line conclusions, and I tried to use special counsel Mueller's own language in doing that".

Attorney General Bill Barr insisted that if the administration's position on healthcare was so "outrageous" then Democrats shouldn't worry about it prevailing in court.

He has backed away from calls to release the full report and has resumed denouncing the investigation.

The hunters are about to become the hunted, and no amount of sympathy from Democratic politicians and media talking heads will save them from the wrath of the American people they've been lying to for the past two and half years. "It will never end, but that's the way life goes!" he tweeted Monday. When asked if he has shown or discussed the report with the White House, Barr notably declined to answer. Technically, it was about the Justice Department's 2020 budget.

In addition to questions about the Mueller report, Barr is likely to be queried on the Justice Department lawsuit about the Affordable Care Act, as well as the Trump administration's immigration policies and family separation.

The public - not Congress - will get the first look at the redacted report.

Barr, who was nominated to his post by Trump four months ago, was asked about spying by Republican Sen.
